In this installment of the Gopher Coffee Shop podcast, Extension educators Ryan Miller and Brad Carlson sit down with Dr. Michael Walsh, a Weed Scientist with the University of Sydney in Australia. A special thanks to goes out our colleagues at Iowa State for hosting Michael and facilitating this podcast. Michael was on-hand to talk about harvest weed seed control (HWSC) and to demonstrate combine setup for HWSC. In this podcast we spent some time talking about Australian Agriculture, herbicide resistance in weeds, and the need for alternative weed management tactics. We talked about use of chaff carts, chaff lining and tramlining, bale direct systems, and impact mills for weed management. Enjoy!
